We are just starting to look into the costs of childcare as me and my husband are likely to be both working full time if we make the move to Perth. We have 2 children below school age, so would need childcare for them both. I've done a little bit of research and found a cost of $97.50 each for a full days childcare, so $195 in total. Would you say this is about average?
I've also seen that the government assistance towards family's childcare is changing this year and is now a child care subsidy, but this is dependent on the parents meeting the residency requirements. Can anybody tell me what these requirements are and whether we would meet them if we were on a permanent visa?
